On Thursday, April 11, the world got news that Assange was put in handcuffs after Ecuador decided to revoke the political asylum that had given him sanctuary, essentially allowing for the founder of Wikileaks to be taken into police custody. And the Baywatch alum, 51, was quick to voice her disgust.
“I am in shock,” the Canadian-American actress tweeted after viewing video of the 47-year-old being dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London. “He looks very bad. How could you Ecuador? (Because he exposed you).” She continued, “How could you UK.? Of course –— you are America’s bitch and you need a diversion from your idiotic Brexit bulls–t.” The model was not done there, this time aiming her anger at the leader of the free world.
“And the USA? This toxic coward of a President. He needs to rally his base? — You are selfish and cruel,” she said, adding, “You have taken the entire world backwards. You are devils and liars and thieves. And you will ROTT And WE WILL RISE.” Anderson has been in Assange’s corner for quite some time, as she has apparently visited him numerous times during his seven-year stay at the embassy.
Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno said he took the action against Assange due to “repeated violations to international conventions and daily life.”
Moreno added, “The discourteous and aggressive behavior of Mr. Julian Assange, the hostile and threatening declarations of its allied organization, against Ecuador, and especially the transgression of international treaties, have led the situation to a point where the asylum of Mr. Assange is unsustainable and no longer viable.”
